Da Tree Trim Dude

Yesterday we had our six coconut trees trimmed of branches and coconuts. This is a photo of Nixon...he's Tongan with his own tree trim business on Maui, and we used his services for the first time because our other tree-trimmer wasn't available. We were impressed with his speed and mostly his clean-up service. Compared to our other guy who often left branches laying on the ground for four days before he returned to take them away, Nixon had everything cleaned up in a matter of hours and even went around the yard with a blower to get the debris off sidewalks, etc.

It sounds to me like out of another world "Coconut trees being trimmed" I only have a wheeping willow to trim and our guy is a fat, strong, bold man not such an exotic Nixon, lol !

What a reference. You should type it up and give it to him to carry around as he looks for work. Of course, there's always the chance he'll get so much work that you won't be able to hire him for your yard anymore. Gee, what to do?

Tongans are quite friendly people and he looks like a keeper for future tree trimming - my friend has his own tree trimming compnay as well on O'ahu - its tough work for sure!
